As technology constantly advances, news travels faster than ever. Thankfully for folks like us who are passionate about cars and trucks, there is an unprecedented array of information sources as well. Many of these automotive media outlets are looking to use their channels for means beyond mere entertainment. Ardent supporters of the SEMA Action Network (SAN) known for their online magazine and forum, BangShift.com recently stepped up by posting the video pictured above with the following call to action:


"[We’re] all about driving hot rods, race cars, trucks, and more. Thanks to groups like the SAN we can do just that. This video explains what the SAN does and why you should support it. Please join now! And tell them BangShift sent you.”


It’s hard to argue with those words! Many thanks, Chad and company, for seeking us out and promoting the SAN with such a gratifying segment.
